This reminded me of the Michael O'Brien novel Father Elijah. Intrigue, corruption and scandal can't compete with the Holy Spirit!

Definitely Catholic, but also political

This is a book that has a mission-to point out the wrong in the world and show how sin and Satan have brought it about. It is definitely written from a traditional Catholic point of view in regards to abortion and the family. As a Catholic, I could appreciate that and recognize the role that those issues played in both the book and the world. However, the book is also written from a Politically and Economically conservative point of view which is not

What a great novel and so unique in its format. The Devil Hates Latin is a Catholic thriller with twists and turns that will leave the reader wide-eyed. Catholic thrillers, especially of the traditional vein, are rather rare in my experience and I thoroughly enjoyed this one. This strangely surreal novel accurately captures what I can only surmise is the current state of the Church and what I know to be the state of secular culture in postmodern times. Finishing this novel was bittersweet. I am ...more

Good idea but needed polishing. Unprofessional. Too bad since the message was good.

So bad it's good. If Dan Brown were a trad Catholic. Best part is reading through the very very thinly disguised roman a clef characters.

The devil hates Latin

Being a practicing Catholic myself, I found this book an easy read, entertaining and a true mystery. Does this really happen in the Church of Christ?

The first book I've read in a long time that I had a hard time putting down. Highly recommended for anyone, not just Catholics.

A fast paced thriller with a strong Catholic identity, and supernatural overtones. A wealthy American Catholic family settles in Rome, and through their kids, who are respectively in a troubled marriage, a sister in a orthodox convent, and a seminarian, get involved with a Italian family, and a deeply troubled Priestly order. A fun, exciting and enjoyable read.

This was a relatively fast-paced read set in a modern day Church afflicted with many real modern-day problems, and characters who are well-developed and whom I grew to love. I hope there will be a sequel, because I already miss Luigi!

Good book

Hits pretty close to our modern times. Hopeful, and encouraging in a dark time. Full of information on true Catholicism.

Stonking thriller featuring exorcisms and excitement in Rome.

What a great read.

What a great read. It gives me great hope. I hope to see more like it. I highly recommend this to all Catholics, and even to non Catholics.

“Dominus noster ad templum sanctum suum vocare dignatus est,”under the cover of darkness, the Head could hear Father Paul’s voice droning on steadily in the hated Latin.  He could also hear shuffling and soft footsteps somewhere quite near him. It was a sound that made his skin crawl.” 0 likes
“More than once he’d had to resist the overwhelming urge to bolt – out of that baroque confessional, out of that ancient church, into the freedom of the streets of Rome. When the urge was upon him, his anxiety skyrocketed, his breath grew short. On the other side of the grille, Father Paul had recognized the symptoms of a small demon under stress. “Phillip,” he’d said quietly, “you must have courage.” 0 likes
